Jeff Goodman left Fox Sports a little while ago, moving on to sully the good name of CBS for a spell. One thing that apparently didn’t leave with Goodman was the ability for Fox to post ridiculous, ignorant, and sometimes downright idiotic stuff on its website. The NBA draft gave them the opportunity to do just this, and they obliged it by tossing out two of the dumbest draft blurbs on the whole interweb about Kentucky’s second-round picks.
First, there’s this glowing endorsement of Josh Harrellson:
Prospect Rank: 79
Traded to Knicks. Josh Harrellson is not an NBA player. Congrats to him for getting drafted, but he’s got no business being taken. He’s tall and he works hard. That’s it.
That’s funny, because I thought getting drafted by the Knicks would make someone an NBA player. It’s a shame you weren’t tall, Mr. Draft Analyzer, or you could have made it to the league, because clearly you work very hard at your current job, making sure to get every detail right. Like in this snippet about DeAndre Liggins:
Prospect Rank: 54
Liggins essentially got squeezed out of Kentucky to make room for all the top recruits. He lacks the athleticism that some of the other defensive guards in this draft have had.
Nevermind. Turns out you don’t work very hard, because if you did, you’d know how stupid the two sentences you just wrote would be before writing them. It’s one thing to be a hater. It’s another to be a moron. Fox…this would fall into the ‘moron’ category. We expect better. Actually, we don’t.
